We definitely know what these two were thankful for this year! Mark Ballas and BC Jean not only celebrated their Thanksgiving weekend with the traditional family dinner, but with a wedding! The Dancing with the Stars pro and his songwriter sweetheart tied the knot on Friday in Malibu, California, and we have all the details!
After getting engaged the day before Thanksgiving last year, Ballas and Jean have officially come full circle, saying their "I dos" the day after Thanksgiving on November, 25. (Wedding dress after pumpkin pie? Sure, why not?) According to Us Weekly, the wedding took place at Calamigos Ranch with tons of Dancing with the Stars alum in attendance. Julianne Hough, Brittany Cherry, Sharna Burgess, Keo Motsepe, Cheryl Burke, Sasha Farber, Emma Slater, and Jenna Johnson all scored guest list status, while Derek Hough served as best man. "It's Time!" Hough wrote on Instagram ahead of the ceremony, captioning a photo of a vintage-inspired pocket watch.
When the time did arrive, the bride stunned in a beaded long sleeve wedding dress with open shoulders and a jeweled high neckline — so unique! Meanwhile, the groom looked dashing in a blue suit, complete with a newsboy cap and velvet bow tie. This couple is just too-cool, no?
And from the reception photo booth snapshots and the fact that so many DWTS pros were cutting a rug on the dance floor, we have no doubts that this was quite the shindig! "Everybody was having a blast," a source shared with Us Weekly. "It was a fun day with a lot of love and emotion. There was lots of dancing, of course, and it was a great party."
And the groom of course agrees! "It's a wild feeling," Ballas told People magazine of his and BC Jean's big day. "Your wedding is something you subconsciously prepare for your entire life. You wonder who it's going to be with, where it is going to be and how the ceremony and reception are going to be. Now it's finally here and happening. It's surreal. I just want to soak it all up because I just know I'm going to click my fingers and the whole evening will be over and I want to make sure I enjoy it."
"I'm so grateful so many family and friends were able to travel here to celebrate our wedding," continued the dancing pro. "It's going to be a night of amazing moments." From the looks of these photos, it certainly was!
